If you’re looking for a pancake mix that is easy, delicious, fluffy and whips up in minutes, then Krusteaz is the classic pancake mix you need.
I’ve been dreaming about brunches with friends and weekend trips where I don’t spend the entire time cooking and cleaning. While, yes I love cooking. It’s my absolute favorite thing to do. The clean-up can sometimes be exhausting and I’m like everyone else: I love short-cuts that are as equally as delicious and deliver a quality final product. Enter: Krusteaz.
Krusteaz Pancake Mix
Growing up, Krusteaz was my household’s go-to. It’s so simple: just add water. The pancakes end up being fluffy, taste like buttermilk and are so delicious. We’d usually just add some honey. There was nothing creative or particularly interesting but now I like to add a bit of fresh berries, a softened pat of butter and some maple syrup. I love to make coffee shop-like iced coffees. The whole set-up brings me a lot of joy.
How to Make Krusteaz Pancake Mix
- On the back of the bag, it’ll tell you how much mix to use depending on serving size. I always go with 2 cups, which serves around 6 to 8 people.
- And then I add 1 2/3 cups of water.
- I mix it up with a whisk; it’ll be a nice thick consistency.
- Grabbing my non-stick skillet, I set it over medium-low heat. And using a 1/4-cup measure, scoop out the batter and drop it onto the skillet.
- After the pancakes form little bubbles on top, I flip it and cook it on the opposite side for about 30 seconds.
What to Serve with Pancakes
I’m going to be honest with you, I like to keep it simple.
- Fruit: I don’t love fruit syrups because I want to enjoy the pancake itself. That’s why I love just simple berries and fruit the best.
- Softened butter: The softened part is key. You want it to nearly melt the second it hits the pancakes.
- Maple Syrup or Honey: I love pure maple syrup. I usually go with Grade A or B. Delicious. And honey works too.
- Nuts: I would love some chopped up nuts, toasted in a bit of butter, pinch of salt and sugar. I think that would be glorious on top, too.
